PALO ALTO, CA and SAN FRANCISCO, CA – MacWorld — January 27, 2011 – The new MacBook Air is the lightest, slimmest MacBook yet—so keeping it protected is essential. Today, Speck is proud to introduce a suite of exciting products designed to help MacBook Air owners safeguard their valuable investment from the bumps and dings of everyday life. From snug neoprene sleeves to ultra-thin lightweight hard-shell covers, Speck’s new cases for MacBook Air 11″ and 13″ all feature its trademark fashion-meets-function designs.
Otherworld Computing, more commonly known as simply OWC, made a splash this year at CES with its line of Mercury Aura Pro SSDs for 2008 and 2009 models of the Macbook Air and other Macbooks. It’s the first of its kind made specifically for the MBA. The drive trounces standard HDD performance, and shows a 400% performance increase against the stock SSD from the 2009 model and a 200% performance increase against the 2010 model of the MBA.
